We are rolling out Canvas full school never year (We are a fully cyber K-12 school.) We were previously using Moodle. To prepare our students, we created onboarding courses for the new school year.

We have one for K-6, 6-8 and 9-12. What are some of the most helpful tips and tutorials I should share with our students in our Canvas module? Right now I have 4 categories:

  • Navigating Canvas
    • Dashboard
    • Global and Course navigation
    • Course Homepage
    • Modules
  • Updating Your Canvas Account
    • Updating Profile
    • Setting Notifications
  • Contacting Your Teacher
    • Inbox
    • Announcements
  • Working in Canvas
    • Canvas Calendar
    • Submitting an Assignment
    • Checking Grades and Feedback
    • Canvas Help

Any additions, suggestions, resources are greatly appreciated
